We can derive the value for this attribute by counting the number of loan entities associated with that customer. As another example, suppose that the customer entity set has an attribute age, which indicates the customer’s age. If the customer entity set also has an attribute date-of-birth, we can calculate age from date-of-birth and the current date. Thus, age is a derived attribute. In this case, date-of-birth may be referred to as a base attribute, or a stored attribute. The value of a derived attribute is not stored, but is computed when required.

For one-to-one relationships either primary key can be used. For nonbinary relationships, if no cardinality constraints are present then the superkey formed as described earlier in this section is the only candidate key, and it is chosen as the primary key. The choice of the primary key is more complicated if cardinality constraints are present. Since we have not discussed how to specify cardinality constraints on nonbinary relations, we do not discuss this issue further in this chapter. 3. 4 Design Issues The notions of an entity set and a relationship set are not precise, and it is possible to define a set of entities and the relationships among them in a number of different ways.

An entity may be concrete, such as a person or a book, or it may be abstract, such as a loan, or a holiday, or a concept. An entity set is a set of entities of the same type that share the same properties, or attributes. The set of all persons who are customers at a given bank, for example, can be defined as the entity set customer. Similarly, the entity set loan might represent the 27 Silberschatz−Korth−Sudarshan: Database System Concepts, Fourth Edition 28 Chapter 2 I. Data Models 2.
